How much Biotin do you take daily? Does it just strengthen hair or does it help regrow hair?

taye

u were in my dream last night

we were driving somewhere..you were behind the wheel and i think there were 4 or 5 ppl in the car

everyone was talkingabout something boring like movie or music awards or something and uu said "you know who else was nominated? shit theres a cop on our tail' (i thought thats a weird name for a band/movie)  just then you floored it  a and swerved into the oncoming lane then i heard sirens  and you skidded across  3 lanes smashing into barrels and ending up sideways across the oncoming lane

the cop pulls up on a motorcycle and yells turn that the f__k around and getout

you started to turn it arpundand i woke up but expecting u to try to outrun the motorcycle again

and i think it was all cause u had a single joint in the car..lol

weird huh

What a silly twollop i am - I meant DLS Dreadlockssite, after googling rainbow gatherings i would click on th pics and they would come up with dreadlockssite on them. I could just emagine you living smwhere in the country in the hills, nice quiet lifestyle. I too am the oddity here in Hokitika, i live as much in the country aS I can on a couple of acres of land with some bush, my hubby and i are building a tiny wooden hut in the middle of the bush to give the illusion of being in the remote bushland. When my kids r grown i will be going smwhere totally remote and deep in the forest, alot of people think i'm nuts here - but really thank God that most think like that or everyone would have the same idea!

Just looking at your pics going by i see you have a black frypan and bread baking dishes nailed to the wall, while i have my black fry pans hanging above the coalrange, i think i'll do the same thing with my bread or cake baking tins, i love the look, also i have a wooden ladder hung up from the ceiling in which i hang alot of pots and pans, gives that country feel.

Glad you had a great time at the Rainbow gathering - wish they had them here!

 Well that is a compliment if you see a resemblance in our hair, I just love the natural brown dreads with maybe a bit of lighter wheat type of colour at the ends. I just googled 'Rainbow getherings' and they look so great, don't know if we have anything like that here in NZ, they really look like my type of thing, no wonder SE loves them so much.

Now i will take a mental note of the age of my dreads, as i have given them the odd trim just to mainly get the sheeps wool out i was so surprized to see they have got to a descent length, don't think i'll ever be 1 of those people who grown their dreads down to their knees but i do like just a bit shorter than your length for me, now i'm a 51 year old i suppose longer would look silly, i would love to add some more wraps and beads but there again not too many as to not take awat that natural look, even though the type of beads etc would be made of either wood or some tyupe of natural thing.

Thank you for taking such an interest, with day to day life so bussy with the kids and all, it is really nice to stop for a moment and talk with like minded people about how our dreads r going. Even though it is a life style it still keeps me in tough with why i'm doing or growning my dreads, theres not many people here with dreads and can be fround apon from time to time here.

There seems to be a connection between the rainbow gatherings and DLS, as the pics i coppied had this address? Heres some examples.

Peace.

Dearest Taye - what a morning i have have loading ip some pics of my dreads!!!!! After breaking out in a sweat a few times and having a couple of meltdowns i've finally got a few pics of me and my dreads. No wonder i don't do this often, it is in this case the library computer, usually it all goes fine and i love getting progress pics of other people dreads, i can make the others bigger too, its just i've ran out of time today but i will make these pics bigger as it shows the dreads much better. I had to first load the pics from my ipad to my face book to then get them on here! Will have to figure how to do copy and paste with an ipad!

Thank you so much dear friend for inspiring me to do this, i really am so happy i did it.

Peace.

This is the first time i am looking at the THREAD of our comments and can for the first time see more clearly from when i first had my dreads done, because i have given them the odd trim they r not that much longer, also with having to split some i had to sew on coloured sheeps wool to the side where i had to cut through the big sections. You r more in touch with the length of time my dreads were first done, WOW, but now looking at this thread i see what you mean. Oh yes i am sure going to load some more pics, i gave my dreads a good wash last night ready for (oops I don't know if this is good to mention) a colour, i do see people colour their dreads here so i think its OK, i recon using hennas is a natural thing though, my dark roots with grey don't look at all nice with the more natural rustic light brown with lighter ends. I just can't give the colouring up yet, this is why i love the colour of your dreads so much - so natural, of course i know its your own colour and not from a bottle like mine! When i've done the colour i will then do the pics and yes please load some more pics of your dreads, i love going to your page to have a look, i'm like you and have to get smone to specialy take some photos, i've already told my kids to do this for me in the next couple of days, maybe your daughter could do yours. Your dreads were already quite long so they must be almost to your waist by now, i won't let mine grow down until i know i have my dreads completely sorted out, looking at the pics on this thread my dreads r the same length now as they were then! Soon agter the pics my dreads stretched sooo much and went very thin and my sections were still very big, but as i said so much hair came away from those sections and gave birth to new ones, hope i'm not going on too much its just when it comes to dreads i could talk all day.

Dearest Taye - I have just seen your message to me from Monday, don't know how i missed it as i visit DLS daily. Yes its a year and a half i only realize it now that you have mentioned it, i still so love my dreads and remember when we were talking about how many dreads we hade and that i only had 22, well now i have over 34, don't know what happened! I did exactly what you said and let mine just go and do what they wanted and forgot about the sectioning, they arn't as thick as yours, if anything they have split up and thinned down, so now i have more loose hair to still dreads up but i'm just letting it do what it needs to. I am still so loving your dreads, they are still the ideal for me, when i see you get round on DLS i sometimes come to see your page and how your doing or if you have added any pics. Now that its 1.5 years i will post some more pics, when i first had my nice fluffy fatter baby dreads i loved it, but they soon stretched out and hardened when they got tighter, so i have given them a trim hoping they would fatten up again so there won't be a difference much in length, but what is there is real natural dread - yay! I don't think i could ever be dreadless again! I will get my kids to take some good pics and get them to DLS in the next few days, now i'm going to have a look at your pics.

Thank you for messaging me, i do think about how your getting on from time to time.

Thanks, and no, the government in Egypt doesn't mind my dreads, actually people here like them a lot. It's Saudi Arabia, the place where i live that opposes any personal freedom at all and seems to think that my dreads represent some sort of anti-islamic cult (which they don't). Whenever the police sees me they immediately have to search my car for drugs. I mean people need to start realizing that dreadlocks DO NOT represent weed or any other kind of drug.

Ps: they're not as tight as they look! I made sure of it :) they've still got that squishie-ness to em.

Thank you Taye! I'm really glad you told me all of this. Nope, I just simply used TnR, nothin else. But i'm confused as to what root flipping is? All I did was section as i went along and saved my bangs for last (at first i wasn't going to do them, but they get on my nerves being all in my face and such, so I did) I had dreads awhile back and they came out fine, but then I got sick of everybody's comments and decided to take em out. Now i'm ready for my journey regardless of what anyone says cause I love dreads and have wanted them for a super long time. They're a beautiful work of art :')

Hi Taye, have not had the pleasure of talking to you yet. I have only found/bought Biotin with 1000mcg, may I ask where you purchase yours with the higher dosage?  Will taking more than one pill up the mcg's or does it stay the same? I will go cross border shopping and purchase it in the states if needed to get a stronger dose. Thanks in advance for the info.

I love your dreads, they area beautiful. Also, a thank you for sharing so many pics to inspire my journey that is not yet complete. .....Peace, the Barrellady
